Let’s face it: the winter months are typically reserved for eating. Feasts abound-be it Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, you name it. The point is, if your dinner plans for next year include breaking out the vinyl-covered folding card tables and chairs from the basement-it might be time to consider building a proper dining or kitchen table. With that in mind, we’ve made a small selection of our more popular members-only plans and articles totally free. Members and non-members alike can download five table plans that are sure to please
Shaker Dining Table Based on a piece built at the Shaker community in Hancock, Mass., Christian Becksvoort’s Shaker Dining Table is sized to meet the demands of today’s diners. Bed bolts used in construction ensure that the trestle design can be knocked down easily for moving or storage.
My Kitchen Table Back in 1997, Fine Woodworking departed from its normal fare to cover the construction of a knock-down kitchen table that incorporates shop-made gussets reminiscent to those often used in mass-produced furniture. The result is a rugged, yet stylish kitchen table that’s strong, sturdy, and portable.
Folding Vineyard Table Neal White’s trestle-style Vineyard table is remarkably compact, folding easily for storage or transportation. White uses his as a second table for family gatherings.
Stickley Done Lightly Although figured maple lends this Arts & Crafts dining table a lighter look, don’t be fooled. This tabletop measures in at a beefy 4-ft. by 9-ft. Reinforced mortise-and-tenon joinery, a subtop that prevents racking, and a durable shop-made finish make this an heirloom that’s bound to stand the test of time.
Shaker Harvest Table This drop-leaf dining table is considered a Shaker classic. Furnituremaker Christian Becksvoort details his method for cutting the rule joint where the table and leaves join, as well as how to install hinges for smooth operation.

I love the shaker style does anyone have examples of different types of legs you can put on this table. I don't necessarily care for the one listed in the planes.
Thanks for the plans, the download button works just fine now.
Yikes. Looks like we've got a technical glitch here, as the plans aren't linking up as free. I'm "going in" for the repair. Nothing nefarious. LOL
Guys, it is normal if they charge us, woodworking is a very elaborate and precise profession, I also found a lot of wonderful and easy to follow Woodworking projects plans at http://bit.ly/iLoveWood
I am shocked at Fine Woodworking's misleading approach to mine for membership. I am disgusted with this magazine/site in the first five minutes of signing up. That is a record for me personally given what my expectations were deciding to sign up with this site. Wow, I never would of thought of this organization being deceitful in any shape or form. Lesson learned.
I have been a steady customer for years of this magazine all be it buying magazines at retail stores. I just don't get why such an approach would ever draw new subscribers to this magazine. The only thing this experience has accomplished today is to push me away from ever subscribing to Fine Woodworking. I am truely disappointed with what I encountered here and I will never buy Fine Woodworking again.
This is almost as bad as getting the first month of diet pills "for free!", so long as you sign up for auto deliveries for a year.
I love this site and understand it's here to make money. But please do not offer "Free Project Plans, your source for detailed drawings..." with a link to "buy" the full size plans. That's just wrong. I thought FW was above this type of deceptive advertising.
Agreed. This is a very misleading usage of "free".
The "Download the plan" link ends up at a shopping cart where you have to pay for the plan.
The PDF article itself is free to download, but I was always able to access it for free anyway as a member.
I agree with user-2434678. I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to download one of the plans. It seems that the articles (which are free to members anyway) are being promoted as being free -- while the plans are discounted. What's up with that?
Maybe I'm missing something, but aren't these "article based" plans always free for members?
You know what would be great? Listing actual detailed plans + cutlist here for free for a few weeks. Members only of course.
Tom’s cabinet blunder and other smooth moves. Plus we roll out some new segments: stats and surprise questions. Will they make the cut?
Fast, fun approach to making a comfortable, casual seat
In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.

Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
